Matthew continues to make huge strides in taking care of his diabetes. And let me tell you....it's a huge blessing to know that he's learning to take care of himself. (A constant prayer of mine...)
I think I've mentioned before that there's no nurse at Matthew's school. There is a teacher who has a daughter with Type 1 and she has graciously acted as his "school nurse since Matthew was diagnosed. Nearly 2 years ago!
But for the past several months, we've been working to transfer responsibility over to Matthew. The teacher is there if he needs her and he can always call me, but basically he's on his own for lunch.
And he's getting it!
Earlier this week, Matthew said he felt low in English (right before lunch) so he took a tab.
By the time he got to lunch, he still felt low and sure enough, he was 61. He said he took another tab AND deducted 5 carbs from his lunch meal....just to make sure he wouldn't go low on the playground after lunch.
Couldn't have done it better myself!
I'm really proud of the way Matthew is gradually moving in the right direction.
Sometimes it's so hard to let go and trust him to take care of himself.
I worry about him making mistakes (because I've made a lot!) but I know the only way he's going to learn is to gradually let go.
This is the part of being a D-Mom that really stinks.
Well....that, and the loss of sleep. ; )
